Introduction to SOAP API
SOAP API is a mechanism that allows external system to connect to Salesforce so that they can do CRUD operation, perform search operation, as well as perform administrative tasks.

This SOAP API will expose the below details to external system –
  • Standard Salesforce objects including all custom fields.
  • All Custom Salesforce objects and all fields.
  • Object Metadata.
Using SOAP API, user can do below things –
  • Perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations on data.
  • Query Salesforce data.
  • Work with approval process.
  • Create and update sharing records. 

As a best practice, developer should use the API options for creating Share records only during migration. Otherwise developer should always keep business rules out of Integration layer.
